Tuesday Word: pre-dawning

In urban exploration, pre-dawning is the act of entering an abandoned building while it is still dark out, then exploring once the sun begins to rise. This is generally done to lower the risk of being caught trespassing, whether while attempting to enter during the day or using an artificial light source at night. In addition, it allows explorers to photograph a location during one of the "golden hours," shortly after sunrise or before sunset, when the light is warmer and softer looking.
